Fantastic App/Program - Great for Beginners And Professionals! - MacDraft gives me the ability to do high production in minimal time. I researched other CAD programs but found MacDraft to be extremely user friendly as it is designed to make you feel like you are working on a drafting table. Its easy to use tools help with the layout process, especially the drag and drop libraries of commonly used clip art items that make the drawing process quick and easy. In addition to drawing home plans with MacDraft, I use this program daily in other aspects of my business. I can design brochures, business cards and flyers with it. It is my main "go to" program for almost everything I do. Technical support is available via phone, iChat and email, and I have always found the people to be helpful and very knowledgeable about their product. The developers of MacDraft are constantly working to improve the program and keep the users up to date.

Review by fxstein

Old outdated, crashes under 10.10 - Not worth a fraction of its price. 6.0 is almost 4 years old, outdated and crashes under 10.9 and 10.10 frequently. Company website is deserted and has not been updated in over a year. Don’t get fooled by the ‘Pro’ name. Does not even have the most basic features like trimming arcs or circles. Useless. Very expensive mistake. This app should be pulled from the App Store.
